Better if you get USB HP printer to use with it. The only way to use that what you have it to get a printer server that supports parallel cable and connect the print server to your router using Ethernet LAN cable.

Can the P2055d be connected with a parallel lead?


Most HP's if they have a port for parallel, it is a special plug on the back that looks more like a SCSI plug. If your printer has this plug you need the special cable, otherwise you will need an adapter to convert USB to parallel.

Recently, I purchased a HP Pavilion PC. After setting up the computer I found out that there is not a slot for my printer. My printer is an HP Lazer Jet 3200. Please let me know what I can to so that...


Christopher,

The LaserJet 3200 has 2 different available connections...a parallel cable connection and a USB connection. If you used the parallel connection previously, you will need to purchase a USB cable if your new computer doesn't have a parallel port.

The 2 different connections are shown beginning on page 31 of the user guide.

Here is a link to the user guide if you do not have it:

Connecting a new computer to an older printer


Does this Laptop have a docking station? If so then on the back of the docking station should be a parallel port.

Is you laptop connected to a router/firewall/switch? Then you can get a device that will make the printer become networkable and connect to you firewall switch...this unit is called HP jetdirect. It will make your parralel printer become more useful and connected to the network.

Problem is the printer is "old school" and the laptop is "new school", the JetDirect will bridge this...
